Journal Entry 1 by wingPeoniowing from Porvoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Friday, April 12, 2024
"Vatanescu, an impoverished Romanian construction worker, wants a future for himself and a pair of football boots for his son. So he heads north to a cold, dark country where there is money to be made.

Taking up with a Russian human trafficker, he joins the bottom rung of a begging ring in Finland. But the prospects in this line of work are not as good as he had hoped, and soon Vatanescu is on the run.

His luck turns when he meets a fellow outcast, a hare fleeing Helsinki pest control. The pair embark on a journey that is funny, dark and wonderfully absurd. Could a beggar and a hare change not just the course of a country, but the way we see ourselves?"

This courier is a thief! There is already one copy of this book in French and one in Swedish at the convention, so I'm going to pocket this and release it in Tallinn next week. I think they know all about Russian human trafickers there.
